Pals “Wicked Folds” Blog Hop

2016badge-moss

Hi Stampers.  Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for October 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects feature cards made using “wicked” folds. What is a “wicked” fold? It is anything other than the standard A2 card fold. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

One look at the title of this hop and I KNEW what I wanted to do for this project!  I had seen several other Stampin’ Up! demos playing around with this pop-up panel card.  I believe it started in Europe because most I found were in a foreign language… and in centimeters.  So the first few I did, I had to convert centimeters to inches. But, it’s a great fold and I saved posting it until this very hop! (Since I found it, several US demos have made tutorials too – I’m even planning to do one soon.)

The outside of the card looks like a basic card.  It’s card base is 11″ x 4.25″, scored at 5.5″ – it opens from the bottom up.  I used the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle for this card because it made it so quick and easy!

The surprise is when it opens…

  1. What a fabulous card! Thanks for sharing the great fold technique.

  2. I love this idea. I have always wanted to try it. Now maybe I will.

  3. Lisa, I love this fold! Have not seen it before so am so pleased that you shared it! Love your Christmas images too… they really pop!

  4. Could you please share the online addresses where you found tutorials on this card, please! I really want to CASE this for an Xmas party invitation, but I couldn’t quite make out the details of the insert. You did a fabulous job!!!

  5. What a great way to show all those cute Christmas critters!!! I have not tried this fold and look forward to your tutorial!

  6. I do love it Lisa! How long does it take to make?

    • LOL – now that’s a tricky question. This one took a while, but I had to make two different templates before I found a way that worked well for me. After that it actually came together rather easily…

  7. How wonderful! This is completely “wickedly” adorable….what a fun surprise

  8. I’ve not tried this fold yet Lisa Ann, but you’ve inspired me to give it a go. I love the glitter paper; what a sparkle!

  9. What a project! I appreciate your hard work and it resulted in a wonderful card!
